Youth : Insecurity
Ever notice that you can describe a friend whom you admire by recounting many of their qualities, but normally you don’t know your own, and when you need to talk about them, you don’t even remember ?!
When we know something or someone, we have security and certainty to speak, because we know very well what it is we’re talking about.
The same happens with you. If you know what’s going on with you and where you need to change, and start practicing this change, you will definitely start to value yourself without waiting for others, because it is not correct to wait for compliments from others to feel happy.
Insecurity is the lack of faith in oneself, and therefore insecurity manifests, uncontrolled reactions like jealousy, aggression, possession, you become sentimental, negative, etc.
But the question is: How to be safe then?
The first characteristic is called faith, because this brings safety …
“I tell you the truth, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there, and it will move; nothing will be impossible. “(Matthew 17:20).
So tell me: it is easier to raise a mountain or overcome negative feelings?
My friend, it is obvious that the answer is overcome negative feelings, but how do you overcome this? Getting out of your comfort zone; you challenge yourself! That’s it.
You have to prove to yourself that you can win; set goals, challenges, and win them. And you will see that the more you develop your self-confidence, the more security you will have and you will discover your value, regardless of others’ opinions.
But the main thing is your interior, investing inside, to truthfully know God and strengthen your relationship with Him, and you will be able to win everything. You will not be the same, and the moment that insecurities arrive, you will face them, not because you have the capability, but because He enables you to!
